Roku not streaming Netflix correctly

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I have a Roku 3 and cannot get it to stream Netflix correctly. If I have it set to display type of 720p, it fairly quickly ramps up to the 3000 stream. However, if you set it to 1080p display, it starts at 235 and takes forever to get to 1050, which it then never gets any better.

I've also tried this on a Roku 2 with the same results. If I use my AppleTV 3, it almost immediately jumps to the 5800 stream.

I have plenty of bandwidth and all of the devices are plugged in to the same wired switch.

Anyone else seen this? It's rather frustrating as I prefer the Roku interface to the AppleTV.

Thanks.

Are you using 2.4Ghz or 5Ghz wifi?

I just recently bought my first video streaming device, a Roku 1. How can I tell which stream I'm getting? If I knew how to check I'd gladly report what I'm getting. I do notice that Netflix starts out pretty fuzzy, then clears up after 10 secs or so (I'm using a 60" plasma).

I found the Roku to be very inconsistent regarding quality with Netflix. Your measurements seem to confirm what I was seeing. Much as I liked the Roku, I had to return it and go back to the Chromecast.
